assuming you used the standard feature(`DCC') ... what does the output
from "grep Xdcc /etc/mail/sendmail.cf" provide? (in /etc/mail, after
modifying freebsd.mc, one has to remove the file: [yourhostname].mc then
run make && make install-cf )

Also, based on that output, does the socket exist? (/var/run/dcc/dccm).

If you tcpdump port 6277 and send a test message to the box, do you see
any traffic? (i.e. firewall check) and is it bi-directional ?
